Our parish priests bring the sacraments of Penance and Anointing of the Sick to home bound and seriously ill parishioners.

First Friday and Sunday Eucharist

Extraordinary Ministers bring communion to home bound, seriously ill parishioners and their caregivers on the first Friday of each month and Sundays, upon request.  Additionally, River Run parishioners are ministered to every Friday and Sunday.
